The Rex hotel is located right on the heart of Santiago de Cuba, very near Plaza de Marte and Enramadas street, the most interesting city artery.
It has been recently renovated and it now features 24 modern and well furnished, though not very large, rooms.The ones facing the street can be a bit noisy since the hotel is located in one of the busiest areas of Santiago.
There is one à la carte restaurant which also serves breakfast, a snack bar and a rooftop terrace-bar which is probably the hotel's most appealing feature due to its cosiness and the panoramic views of the city it offers. Drinks are a little more expensive than in other Santiago bars, though.
All in all it is a good place to stay and we recommend it specially for its location.
